Fox 5 visits Casa de Como




A New York City councilman's new big house is not a big hit with some of the neighbors. Anthony Como also racked up building violations and fines, and that has raised more than a few eyebrows. Fox 5's John Deutzman investigates.

The people of NY care about overdevelopment you fat assed POS. You f'ud up the loyalty from people in your district bc you are an arse.

Uggggh. What a tasteless shitbag design. Fatso put an eyesore in a nice neighborhood. The home is out of character and out of style of the existing homes. AC, do you care about your neighbors?

I am a Republican and I am DISGUSTED by you Como. Hope you fail, you obese POS.

Deutzmann once had a piece of metal thrown at him by a councilman, I forget who.

For the record, let's see what Crowley's house looks like.

Schadenfreude!

How did Deutzman get that fat blob to the microphone? By telling him that it was a cannoli?

Look at that third (bottom) photo. Bigass looks like he's trying to eat the cannoli mike.

How wide a lens was the cameraman using? Fisheye?

Como lost big! His arrogance paved the way! He didn't care about the neighborhood so the neighborhood is biting him in his big ass!!!

italian girl said...

Boy did he look stupid in that report.

Jason in Kew Gardens said...

I enjoyed it when he forgot or denied what he had said 5 seconds earlier while Deutzmann was questioning him. Como's arrogance and inability to cope with any pressure made him look like an inept ass.

but he said in the forum last year that the neighbors are in support of the project because it is improving and updating the neighborhood, thus raising everyone's values. The neighbors quoted in that article didn't seem to agree.

Christina Wilkinson said...

In typical knee-jerk fashion (emphasis on the jerk), the supporters of Anthony Como are flooding the Fox News blog with allegations that the violations were called in by the JPCA rather than neighbors of the monstrosity. None of the officers of the JPCA lives there, and even if they did, the DOB has to actually find something in order to issue a violation. Most of the time they report that they didn't see anything, so what does that tell you?

Anthony Como and his supporters (leftover dirtbags and druggies from the previous councilman, Gallagher) are blaming everyone else but Anthony Como for the Fox5 report.

Truth is Como is a complete idiot and it showed on the TV. Not only did he keep Gallagher's corrupt staff and use the perv Gallagher and his henchmen in his campaign but Como actually allowed them to still carry on Gallagher's war against the neighborhood.

Go away Como, go away Lynda & Rick, go away Serf and please Anthony, tell us why Keri was fired two weeks before the election?

It's official: Como is moron of the year!

Why did Fox wait until after the lection to do a story on Casa di Como? What difference does it make now? The house looks almost complete.

Why can't the TV news guys go after other illegally modded houses too? The ones in FH are becoming an epidemic.

Are there lives in Middle Village
without Dennis Gallagher?

His name seems to make it into a lot of discussions - almost as if that was the intent.

Ya think?

How many of those other illegal houses are owned by an elected municipal employee? How many of the others are owned by the dregs connected to the infected bacteria called Gallagher?

What is the Middle Village address of this "Casa di Como"? I want to check it out.

There is no such thing as "News Reporting" aside the live helecopters.

I worked in a TV studio reporters are banned from picking on immigrants, especially Jews and Latin’s.
Every time they report something other then portraying these parasites and Forist Hills Goat F-ers as poor victims the editors throw 90% of the story on the cutting room floor and have them put them in thumbscrews for doing un approved story.

I worked on SNL at NBC the newsroom was one floor down I knew many reporters who got “called upstairs” to the executive side of the building.
Reporters are assigned things to cover or have to get a green light to even take a crew and truck out.

Countless times I have seen people like Donald Trump, Rudy G, Al Gore, Hillary, Oprah taking the executive elevators upstairs to the General Electric suits.
It was a funny scene watching their body guards sliding all the guns across the scanner counter after the TELL US they want to ban the public from packing.

Its all currupt so are the newspapers

-------------------------
Pretty close FULL wide around 18MM Those super zooms can go 18-300mm. Cannon lenses have become standard in the field and studio.

That crook comes off like Nixon in a frying pan. It been great if he had a cigar in his mouth.
What a lieing tastless turd dirtbag to put his neighbors through hell like that.

I dont like Como and I happily voted for Crowley but Como is right. Those violations are shit and that guy doing the interview was a real asshole.
Just trying to be unbiased.

Como thinks regulations are 'hoopla', demonstrating he's not entirely in command of English. Tommy Huang and Bob Scarano believe they are hoopla as well. A very revealing report...

QC made Fox 5. Unfortch, Deutzman couldn't actually intone the blog title...FCC regs...

kew gardens collector said...

This guy Anthony Como is an attorney? Wow, how did he pass the bar? He's so inarticulate, you would think that one qualification of an attorney is the ability to communicate. Maybe that's why he's a politician, oops, I thought the ability to communicate is also a qualification of an elected official. How did he get elected? It appears that Mr. Como might want to find another career path. How about stand up comedy?

Happy that I found your blog, very interesting and entertaining.

great job by investigative reporter Deutzmann, he made Como look like a complete fool.

With all due respect to Mr. Deutzman, Como makes himself look like a complete fool.

Afew points to make-This house is not the biggest in the area, this is one of the few construction projects that I noticed where workers kept up to the best of their ability painting over graffiti that was consistently sprayed on the construction fence by COMMUNITY RAISED KIDS,zoning allows for a one family residence, and it seems like DOB was at this residence daily when I watched from my residence. That's alot of visits from an agency that is understaffed and at the same time was skipping out on major crane inspections throughout NYC? I don't agree with all of the ongoing construction projects, but there may be political motivations behind this particular project. P.S. as a fairly civilized and fair person, I am appalled by some of the comments and language being used concerning this story. Thank you for posting my comments and letting me say my peace.

Why isn't FOX 5 doing a story on the project at 64-64 Wetherole Street? This is a real travesty.

In researching your story concerning 64-64 Wetherole street and then coming back to this piece, how can DOB dismiss violations on that project and uphold similar violations on this project? That Wetherole project is very disheartening.

Sounds like the bloated overdeveloper himself, Anthony Como. He certainly writes like Como.

Sounds like Como, writes like Como, it's Como!

Gee thanks Master Como for painting over the graffiti on your construction fence while we had to look at your unsightly half finished rotting piece of crap for two years and now we have an ugly, homage to brick, monstrosity. And yeah, all of us Middle Village peasants are really jealous that we can't live in that brick pile.

So you had to build big for wifey to keep up with her Brooklyn Jones's, right Anthony? Is she bugging you to move yet? If not it's coming soon big boy.

Man are you the biggest sap or what?

Millie said...

Work not conforming to plans, construction without a permit, violating stop work orders;
ALL serious violations.

As a Councilman, Mr. Como should set an example. He didn't even pay his fines!

And why is he building a McMansion in the first place? Not smart.

Wrong, most Middle Villagers have much better taste than Como, his wife and father-in-law. And FYI, most Villagers are more articulate than Como, I heard him speak a few times and each time was worse than the other. How did he ever get elected in the first place?

Are you kidding me? I personally know that the graffiti sat there for weeks before anyone showed up to paint over it. Why would you even bring this up? It is so trivial compared to the countless violations by your local representative.

Are you blind? How could you not notice the fencing falling over, the unsafe scaffolding, the workers urinating in the yard (if you walked past there on a hot summer evening it smelled like a house full of cats), the debris (which by the way housed countless mice which after decades living in the area I have never seen before), the blatant disregard for laws of building height for the area, the use of non union illegal immigrants, the YEARS it took to build this monstrosity (due to STOP WORK ORDERS, and btw it still isn't finished), the inconvenience to neighbors over an extended period of time, etc, etc, etc....
